Funny, while looking at this very comic I noticed that a very recent update to Chrome (on Android) ruined the title-text feature. Now how do I roll this fucker back?

And FYI: you can go to chrome://flags and disable "revamped context menu" to see the full title text again

Sigh... Outlook 2010, how I miss your true dark mode, folding calendar, drag-drop support and smart search folders. In corporate culture, 'unwilling to lose' is not the same as 'allowed to keep'.

If it helps, true Dark Mode came back to Office in 2018/2019 (depending 365 or standalone).

I also have an utterance. Less of an utterance and more of an incantation. Less of an incantation and more of a malediction. Less of a malediction and more of a Word of Power. Less of a Word of Power and more of an Unforgivable Curse.

Rome's declaration of war against Carthage was sent from a no-reply address, so Hannibal had to cross the Alps to deliver his "UNSUBSCRIBE" response in person.

Spreadsheets

My brother once asked me if there was a function to produce a calendar grid from a list of dates in Google Sheets. I replied with a single-cell formula that took in a list of dates and outputted a calendar. It used SEQUENCE(), REGEXMATCH(), and a double-nested ARRAYFORMULA(), and it locked up the browser for 15 seconds every time it ran. I think he learned a lot about asking me things.

Raise your hand if you've implemented a website that was originally managed by an MBA with a sheet like this.

The global financial system is, to a first approximation, innumerable spreadsheets communicating via bids and asks.

Don't ask how many of them use VBA.

Gotta feel kind of bad for nation-state hackers who spend years implanting and cultivating some hardware exploit, only to discover the entire target database is already exposed to anyone with a web browser.

Millennials

Ironically, I've been having these same arguments for at least a decade now. I thought we would have moved on by now, but somehow the snide complaints about millennials continue.

Anyone born between 1981 and 1996 (ages 23 to 38 in 2019) is considered a Millennial, and anyone born from 1997 onward is part of a new generation, generally called Gen Z

1981 is at least 7 years too early. If you have ever done these things, you are probably not a millenial: 1) Called your friend using the number you found in the phone book, and talked to their parents to ask if they were home; 2) Used a card catalog; 3) Correctly capitalized and punctuated a sentence; 4) Acquired a marketable skill.

Those dates are the official ones. It's considered to be anyone reaching adulthood in the early parts of the century. I mean, you can certainly disagree but I'm going to want to see your sources. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Millennials

Possibly it's time to just give up and let "millennial" mean "kids these days" and come up with a different name for the generation that came of age at the turn of the millennium, since that is how 70% of people and 100% of angry thinkpieces about Kids these Days use it anyway.

But 'kids these days' just lacks that scientistic gleam that makes the rant seem knowing rather than dumb. I was thinking recently that nobody talks about Generation X any more. I don't see any think pieces talking about how 40-50 year olds are cynical slackers even though it was self-evidently true when they were 'kids these days'.
